THE STORY:

Founded in 1975 as a nonprofit by a couple determined to educate their two young children together—a typically-developing daughter and a son with Down syndrome—they dedicated the program to deliberately bringing together children with disabilities and children without disabilities, raising the bar for all. While we have grown and changed over the years, this central tenet remains intact. Our early focus on serving children with disabilities along with typically-abled children has broadened to include children with emotional, economic, and at-risk challenges as well. Our mission—to nurture and inspire young children of diverse
needs, economic levels, and family backgrounds in an engaging educational environment—informs all of the work that we do.

Our three preschools collectively serve over 300 children from the age of two months to five years at any given time. Approximately 25% of our children have special needs, ranging from physical disabilities to severe at-risk factors. Approximately 35% of our families receive tuition subsidies.

A significant portion of our annual budget comes from donations from members of the community like you. Our Spring Jamboree and Taco Takedown (held on April 27 at 10:30 AM at Threadgill's South) is a great way to support an exceptional institution while having a great time doing so. I am competing in the Taco Takedown eating contest and would like you to sponsor me with a per-taco donation (last year I ate 14, and am shooting for 16 this year, so use this target to determine what amount makes sense to you) or a flat amount. All of the money will go to the Open Door, none to my medical bills :). All donations are tax deductible.

On behalf of all of the children, parents, and staff at the Open Door Preschool, thank you very much for your support.
